Five Concordia College students recently competed at the 2009 Phi Beta Lambda National Leadership Conference in Anaheim, Calif., and three placed in the top 10 in their events. Concordia is the only PBL chapter in Minnesota so students compete in North Dakota at the state level (first and second place winners at the PBL State Leadership conference are eligible to compete at the National Leadership Conference).
Charles Officer '09, Rosemount, Minn., took first in Financial Analysis and Decision Making and first in Financial Concepts; Andrew Campbell '09, Sauk Rapids, Minn., took second in Future Business Executive and fifth in Job Interview; and Marisa Paulson '11, Langdon, N.D., took second in Hospitality Management and fifth in Business Presentation.

Phi-Beta Lambda is the college division of Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) which has organizations for middle school, high school, college and professionals. FBLA develops leadership, communications and team skills and offers competitive events and the opportunity to network with others at local, state or national levels.
